The Totalitarian Nature of Liberalism

Keith Woods makes some excellent points here.

There seems to be a consensus forming on this issue. Mencius Moldbug calls the current liberal order a distributed despotism. Rusty Reno’s book Return of the Strong Gods was about how therapeutic liberalism came to define itself against nationalism and in favor of all the processes that critiqued, weakened and subverted our traditional culture after World War II in order to repress the “authoritarian personality” and “proto-fascism.”

Yesterday, I was watching an interview with Tom Holland about his new book Dominion: How the Christian Revolution Remade the World. According to Holland, Christianity had a good run in the West down to World War II. He made some similar observations about its decline.

In the aftermath of World War II, Hitler replaced Satan and Auschwitz replaced Hell in Christian demonology. Racism became the ultimate evil in the postwar era. Everything that Nazism stood for whether it was racialism, nationalism or anti-Semitism became evil while the opposite of Nazism became good. The shadow of Nazism had a massive distorting effect on Christianity which in the television and film era became a sub-culture and adjunct to liberalism. Liberals hijacked and redefined Christianity to suit their own humanist values. This new version of Christianity which exists to bless the liberal order is collapsing and has been deserted in droves.

  1. Christianity is not the religion of Judas the Galilean and James the Just, it is the religion of Saul the Herodian.

    Josephus Flavius:

    “Judas the Galilean was the author of the fourth branch of Jewish philosophy. These men agree in all other things with the Pharisaic notions; but they have an inviolable attachment to liberty, and say that God is to be their only Ruler and Lord. They also do not value dying any kinds of death, nor indeed do they heed the deaths of their relations and friends, nor can any such fear make them call any man lord.”

    The whole purpose of Christianity is to get people to obey Emperors rather than God. Why are you surprised when it still does?

  2. Christianity was a powerful social and cultural force that was resented and opposed by the elites. It still is important for them to marginalize the faith, but thanks to Zionism, the prosperity gospel, Catholic pedophilia, and the leftist ideologues emptying many Protestant churches from the pulpit, impious hordes within the Christian ranks have themselves done an excellent job of sabotaging the church.

    I’m starting on my pursuit of theosis, anyway (a goal I think all Christians should attempt to achieve), which most outside of Eastern Orthodoxy can’t relate to, plus I’m combining the insights of non-EO writers into my explorations. I can’t imagine where I would fit into in today’s “Judeo-Christian” mess of a church. I’m not interested in supporting a professional clergy as it is. Let them eat their master’s and PhD degrees in divinity.

  3. Good optics ‘Sire.’ 🙂 Our enemy ( Satan, ) is very clever. However, Jesus is more clever. You know in EVERY alien, ( = fallen angel in make shift body in advanced flying craft, ) abduction, that the victims cried out “in the name of Jesus release me,” were freed instantly ? Yes. Look it up. Rare reports of visitors to underground facilities where there ARE giants of old … they had to sign agreements not to say the word ‘Jesus’ even as slang or cuss !!!!

    1. Repent, get Jesus.
    2. Get butts in gear restructuring America into 4 or 5 new Republics so we can have our Utopia = A VERY ENLARGED CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA FOR WHITE CHRISTIANS ONLY.
    3. Enjoy newly founded Utopia.
    4. Have eternal life in Heaven, ( the real Utopia, ) when physical bodies expire.

    PS : See youtube channels : Chisza7 and John Mark

  4. One of the first books I was assigned to read, when I entered college eons ago, was J. L. Talmon;s The Origins of Totalitarian Democracy. Talmon, an Israeli Burkean, traced it back to the Jacobins during the French Revolution. Years have passed without the work being reprinted, but with each passing year the book becomes more important in understanding what is happening to us.

  5. Even Musonius Rufus would complain that this thread is too metaphysical to comment on. Suffice it to say Hocaustianity is your new state religion, goyim.

  6. Christianity is a spent force in the west as it relates to White Western men and our survival. The quicker you realize that the quicker you can advance forward.
